2.1.20 Indexed union and
intersection


Syntax  ciun 3657 
Extend class notation to include indexed union. Note: Historically
(prior to 21Oct2005), set.mm used the notation
, with
the same union symbol as cuni 3580. While that syntax was unambiguous, it
did not allow for LALR parsing of the syntax constructions in set.mm. The
new syntax uses as distinguished symbol instead of and does
allow LALR parsing. Thanks to Peter Backes for suggesting this change.



Syntax  ciin 3658 
Extend class notation to include indexed intersection. Note:
Historically (prior to 21Oct2005), set.mm used the notation
, with the
same intersection symbol as cint 3615. Although
that syntax was unambiguous, it did not allow for LALR parsing of the
syntax constructions in set.mm. The new syntax uses a distinguished
symbol
instead of and
does allow LALR parsing. Thanks to
Peter Backes for suggesting this change.



Definition  dfiun 3659* 
Define indexed union. Definition indexed union in [Stoll] p. 45. In
most applications, is independent of (although this is not
required by the definition), and depends on i.e. can be read
informally as . We call the index, the index
set, and the
indexed set. In most books, is written as
a subscript or underneath a union symbol . We use a special
union symbol to make it easier to distinguish from plain class
union. In many theorems, you will see that and are in the
same distinct variable group (meaning cannot depend on ) and
that and do not share a distinct
variable group (meaning
that can be thought of as i.e. can be substituted with a
class expression containing ). An alternate definition tying
indexed union to ordinary union is dfiun2 3691. Theorem uniiun 3710 provides
a definition of ordinary union in terms of indexed union. (Contributed
by NM, 27Jun1998.)



Definition  dfiin 3660*

is dfiin2 3692. Theorem intiin 3711 provides a definition of ordinary
intersection in terms of indexed intersection. (Contributed by NM,
